Product Description

Amazon Review

Judith Kerr is one of the finest children's illustrators , combining clever storytelling with subtly witty illustration that makes for perfect bedtime reading for the little ones. In The Other Goose, Judith Kerr does a splendid job telling the tale of a rather dappy, lovable goose called Katerina, who is absolutely certain that she can see another goose in the side of Mr Buswell's shiny car. All her efforts to catch up with the other goose fail miserably, but one night just before Christmas she wakes to find someone coming towards her carrying a goose-sized bag... could it be that the mysterious bag contains her mysterious, disappearing companion? Or is there something more sinister in the air?

The Other Gooseis a gentle, funny story filled with just about enough suspense for a small child's nerves to take , and more than enough humour to keep them (not to mention the grown-up who will inevitably end up reading it over and over again!) happy, smiling and begging for more.--Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Katerina was the only goose on her pond and she was lonely. The other goose in the side of the shiny car never came out. Then one snowy Christmas, Katerina was determined to find out…

Katerina is a wonderful new character from the creator of 'Mog the Forgetful Cat' and 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea.' This charming goose is set to join Mog, that loveable but bothersome cat and the big, furry, stripy tiger as a children's favourite.

Format: Hardcover
This is a lovely heart-warming book which has become a firm favourite with my two year old son. He likes joining in with the story especially the part where Katerina thinks that the other goose has come out of the car. From an adult's point of view it stands up to repeated reading. The only minor criticism is that it portrays life as it would have been in Britain of the 1950s or 1960s.

My 7-year old loved this book so much I couldn't get her to return it to her school library. I ended up buying an excellent condition second hand one from Marketplace so that she would finally relinquish the school's one.
Personally, I think the story is a little too young for her now (it's very much on a par with The Tiger who came to Tea - which she also still loves), but what can I say, there's obviously something about the story and/or the illustrations which just has her enthralled.

My four-year-old thinks this is the funniest book ever. Like the Mog books, the 70/80's style illustrations are charming and easy for a child to relate to. The writing is well-paced and a joy to read aloud.

I love Judith Kerr. Her simple style coupled with brilliantly beautiful illustrations make all her books winners! My 5 year old loves this story and I do too! A great story for sharing together.

I bought this book and several others by judith Kerr after reading the enchanting 'Tiger who came to tea' which is just a fantastic magical story which my 2 year old loves and I must have read to her hundreds of times. 'The other goose' by contrast is boring and the story is pretty lame. It's about a lone and lonely goose that sees it's reflection in a car door (a daft concept) and thinks it is another goose. The story is incomprehensible to 2 - 3 year olds and by the time a child is old enough to get the story they'll be too mature to be entertained by it. I couldn't keep her interested beyond the first page. It's hard to believe it is the same author. A truly talented author would be incapable of producing such garbage. Definitely buy the tiger that came to tea but don't bother with this one. Mine is going straight to the school jumble sale together with 'night at the zoo' various totally forgettable stories about a cat called Mog.
